I am a lifestyle photographer based in Rochester NY (and surrounding counties).   There is beauty everywhere you look around our region!  I feel like I've stumbled upon something magical every time I find a new place to photograph.

Life moves so fast, and we never seem to realize that these moments  when we are rushing around and exhausted, will be gone before we know it!  As a photographer, I'm here to freeze these precious moments in time, and create a memory that you will enjoy and look back on fondly for the rest of your life (and create heirlooms for future generations to cherish!)

I'm the parent of two wonderful, almost-fully-grown children.  In the blink of an eye, they went from little ones running around, to amazing young adults. My head is still reeling from how fast the time actually went!  I treasure the portraits we have of our family, and I'm excited to create the same for you.  When it comes down to it, love is what makes life worthwhile, and I'm always delighted to highlight the love, spirit, and close connection between all those I have the privilege of photographing!

I always focus my sessions on what will best show off your personality.   Everything from your session locations to which poses I chose,  are picked  to highlight what sets you apart.

I love plants, nature, and  being outside!  I specialize in making you the focal point in a beautiful setting.  I typically shoot 1-2 hours before sunset or after sunrise, when the light is best..

 I am happy to make location suggestions for you. Please let me know if you have a special place in mind and I'll make it work!  I'm always excited to find new places to photograph! I've had the privilege to shoot in amazing mansions as well as humble backyards - but there is always beauty everywhere! (if you know where to look!!)

We might not be able to slow the hands of time, but we  CAN preserve it in a photograph, and these will become memories that you will cherish for a lifetime!

During your session, you won't  need to worry about feeling awkward or posed.  I will offer prompts that will bring out fun and candid moments that are real and relaxed. I shoot mainly on-location (at the site of your choosing)   I search for  beautiful sunlight and fleeting  moments. Looking through my portfolio, you'll see that my style is bright and natural.   I always want you to look like yourself …..at your best, in the best light, and in poses that show off your strengths. I currently shoot all around Rochester and the surrounding areas. I'm always happy to talk with you about what you're looking for in your photos, and how we can create amazing memories together!   Please click the contact button above;  I'd love to set up a time to capture YOUR memories!
